What’s a good site for downloading openstreetmaps?
« on: 13 June, 2021, 05:07:19 pm »
Now that summer is finally here, I thought I’d update the maps on my Garmin. Previously, I downloaded the routable bicycle (openfietsmap lite) from garmin.openstreetmap.nl but the site no longer works and I’m obviously behind the times as it appears this has been the case for the last year or so. My previous maps from that site are from 2019.

So, where the best place to download openstreetmaps, in particular the routable bicycle maps? I looked on the openstreet maps wiki and there are a large number of listed sites but which is the best/easiest to use?

Thanks

Thanks. I’ve downloaded GB from there and put in my Garmin. The map has a different look than the ones from the .nl site but all seems ok. Will try it on a ride soon.
